This old man should shut his trap. He is among the top architects that laid the foundation for the rot in the country. When he murdered his boss in July 1966 was when the rot set in. What does he expect?
He got his reward and ascended the height of leadership culminating in becoming the Chief of Staff Army. Minister of defence and accumulated dizzying fortune which in normal situations he wasn’t qualified to attain. God has kept him alive to witness the perfidy his actions and that of his cohorts have bestowed on this country. He may answer elder statesman but he knows he is not qualified for such title. God is not foolish to allow him the longevity to suffer in his old age the pains thst their infamous gang caused this country.
